Dr. Friedman saw me last year for a Uterine cancer Problem. He was fast and efficient in getting me ready for Surgery for a needed complete Hysterectomy . He was totally professional and encouraging. He has a wonderful sense of humor and bedside manner. The procedure was a sucess, and After the procedure He went far and above, to catch a misdiagnoised slide which could have been disasterous for me , but he caught it had an expert opinion done. I highly recommend Him and his wonderful Staff.

I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer on 1/15. My gynecologist recommend Dr Friedman as the best surgeon, and she was right. The surgery was done couple days later, beautiful job. Since then I visit Dr Friedman once every three months for follow up, and honestly I can't wait till the next visit. I have never met a doctor who care for his patients as much as Dr Friedman. He is positive and sincere, an amazing doctor and human being.He saved my life, I trust him100% and I highly recommend him
